    My EK9.... take 2

    My EK9.... take 2

    RHD Japan - what did it actually cost?

    I’ve bought a few bits from there and various other places in Japan it’s normally about 20-22.5 percent of your total order including postage.

    My EK9.... take 2

    Nice one Irf how did the paint lay on top of it? The white Sika is slightly whiter than the oem finish, I was going to get some champ white to touch it in, but with it drying out pretty flexible I was unsure on how the paint would sit on top
